The Panganiban Lab is seeking to recruit a highly creative and motivated postdoctoral research fellow to study the mechanisms of gene-environment interplay in asthma and allergic disease. The successful candidate will lead projects that aim to elucidate the functional role of gasdermins and pyroptosis in cell damage and tissue repair in asthma and other allergic diseases.
